At South Shore Dental Care, we’re known for full-service cosmetic and restorative dentistry. Every day, Dr. Dory Stutman and Dr. Khalida Stutman create stunning, life-changing smiles. A beautiful smile needs a firm foundation to withstand daily wear and tear and provide protection against dental disease and decay. So, after we’ve created the smile of your dreams, we’ll maintain it with comprehensive checkups and cleanings.
Our dentists recommend that patients attend six-month checkups and cleanings to keep dental problems at bay and increase the longevity of cosmetic and restorative treatments such as all-porcelain crowns, veneers, Lumineers, dental implants, and bridgework. You’ve made an investment in your smile. Keep the returns high with quality preventive care.
Checkups & Cleanings: Step by Step
- At your checkup, Dr. Dory Stutman or Dr. Khalida Stutman will scan your teeth for decay with our state-of-the-art DIAGNOdent. This non-invasive laser spots decay in the early stage, when conservative treatment can be applied to retain more natural tooth structure.
- The dentist will check the health of your gums, assess how well your top and bottom teeth fit together, and perform an oral cancer screening.
- We’ll obtain digital X-rays for a detailed view of your mouth’s support structures.
- The hygienist will gently remove decay-causing plaque, tartar and hardened food particles from your teeth and polish them until they sparkle!
You’ll sit down with the dentist for a comprehensive assessment of findings and a discussion of recommended treatments, if any. We’ll schedule your follow-up appointment or next checkup and cleaning, then send you on your way with a plan to maintain a fabulous smile.
